So, I took my son to Sea World for the first time this morning. He loved it. The SW here in San Antonio has a big Sesame Street section with a playground, merry-go-round and a meet-and-greet opportunity with Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie, Big Bird, etc. It was hot and we were all exhausted by that point and when I saw an ice cream stand around the corner, I thought it would be a perfect treat on the way out of the park.
When I told Andrew it was time to go on to the next thing, he started to panic. He sat down on the ground and cried, asking to stay longer in the playground. I told him to trust me and that he didn’t know that where I was taking him next would make him so happy! Of course, when he realized where we were going, his mood brightened, he apologized, and we shared a delicious soft serve cone.
But it hit me that maybe I have a toddler’s attitude with God sometimes. I struggle so much with change, especially a big change that’s headed my way this summer, but I don’t know what God has in store, waiting just around the corner. It might just be better than anything I’m expecting right now.
